We knew with trading Jarvis Landry and then releasing Ndamukong Suh, Lawrence Timmons and Julius Thomas, that the Dolphins were preparing to make moves. One move that not many, if any, saw coming is a free agent signing of Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola.

But, that is in fact what will be happening, as he will come to AFC East Division rival Miami.

Amendola just completed his fifth season in New England and the former undrafted receiver had 61 catches for 659 yards and 2 TDs in 2017. He is most known for two huge postseason performances, catching the game-winning touchdown pass in the final three minutes of New England is 24 – 20 AFC Championship game win over Jacksonville.

He then went on to catch for 153 yards in the Patriots 41-33 Super Bowl 52 loss to the Eagles.

After unloading Landry Friday to the Cleveland Browns for a pair of draft picks, the Dolphins aggressively went and landed Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson on a 3-year 24 million dollar deal.

In an interesting “Bizarro World” twist, Amendola does what Wes Welker did years in reverse, when the Dolphins didn’t resign him and he went on to a prolific career with the Patriots.
